    Has anyone recently bought a Calor Lite cylinder (6kg type)?
    I bought a refill the other day and it did not have the usual contents gauge attached.
    When I queried this, I was told by the 12 year old salesperson that " Oh Calor doesn't fit those gauges anymore" - are you sure I asked, because they were fitting them 3 weeks ago when I bought my last one :RollEyes:

    I have EMailed Calor, but have had no response, so does anyone out there know if I have been told the truth or a big porky ? :BigGrin:

    I bought one three weeks ago with the gauge on, I swapped it for an old type £22.

    The Calor web site still says
    I think that in the early days of Calorlite they produced some cylinders without gauges because they couldn't get enough. I bet it's one of those bottles still in circulation because Calor are too tight to scrap/convert it.

    £22... :Eeek: :Eeek: :Eeek:

    I am sorry... "legal" or not "legal" I will continue to have the attendant at my local fuel station in Avelar, Portugal fill my Calor lite bottle via my "bought on ebay" adapter for around €9.

    Calor = Monopolistic Thieves :Angry: :Angry: :Angry:

    JJ :Cool:

    PS. And so my bottle still has its gauge...

    £19 where I get mine, and they are even lighter than standard because they don't have a gauge on :BigGrin::thumb:

    When I come back from our Scotland trip, I will see what the next bottle has in the way of a gauge & then I will persue the matter from there :Smile:

    I think I was charged an extra couple of quid for the 'upgrade' to a lite bottle:RollEyes:
